My prom's in 2 months. I'm not going because I hated (still do, of course) high school and the prom experience sounds like hell, especially for someone like me.
I never went to the prom. I would have gone had I had a boyfriend, although I am not sure how much fun it would have been. I never really go to dances, and buying an expensive prom dress which I only get to wear once (or a couple of times in my life at most) does not sound appealing to me.
I got a yearbook every year except senior year. I really wanted one then, but they lost my check that I sent in for the yearbook. I never got people to sign it though, because the yearbooks never available for pick-up until October or November the next year. My high school was pretty big.
Nope and I have no regrets about it. High school was difficult enough and it just isn't me anyways. Probably could have got a girl to go with me if I really wanted to, but I didn't bother. The music from what I've heard wasn't even that good anyways. On a side note, I actually attended my cousin's high school graduation last year and I got a kick out of me and one of my other cousins bothering the DJ to play Led Zeppelin and Aldo Nova (he had them in his catalog of music), but it was all pop-rap and bumping and grinding.
I have prom in exactly two weeks from tomorrow and I will be going. I feel like since I didn't go last year(junior-senior prom), I should go this year for the memories. Kind of sucks since my gf won't be able to go because of a show at her sister's middle school, but I have others friends to hang out with. I think I'm going to go coward in the bathroom if my EF friends make me "dance" in front of people, though.

What's up with the revived necro threads tonight?
I did not go to prom simply because I didn't want to.
A lot of the things about school dances really get on my nerves. Too many crazy teenagers in one place for one thing. Even though I was a teenager (and technically still will be for another year) other teenagers, especially the stereotypical ones, annoyed the crap out of me.
There are also a lot of things about those events that go against my values. That type of dancing disgusts me, and I don't like being in an environment where people are exposed to and/or and or are partaking in the consumption of drugs and alcohol.
Plus, we had our prom late - literally the weekend before finals, so I thought my time would be better spent studying. It was nice because I didn't have a boyfriend at the time so there was no pressure on me to go. I didn't have to worry about letting anybody down.
And now for the prom pictures!!!!! :D
I'd start but I don't have mine on hand.
